The traceability is the set of procedures to track the path of any object. In the cryptocurrencies environment, the traceability allows to track any transaction through its blockchain to its origin. This is a very important property because it gives coherence to the network. If a exchange would not have traceability, it would be impossible to locate the origin of the transactions, which would imply severe security problems.
